On Tuesday, the Making a Musical club took a trip to see ‘& Juliet’ in the West End. It was an incredibly uplifting and joyful production that had everyone dancing in their seats and grinning from ear to ear. By the time the confetti fell, spirits were through the roof and everyone’s best arm waving, hip swaying and hand clapping was underway!
This was an inspirational trip for the group who are devising their own mini-jukebox musical in preparation for the Orchard Theatre Festival on Friday 24 June. Seeing how pop classics such as Bon Jovi’s ‘It’s My Life’, Backstreet Boys’ ‘I Want it That Way’ and Katy Perry’s ‘Roar’ could be combined in a retelling of the story of Romeo and Juliet really got the creative juices flowing, and we can’t wait to see what the pupils come up with in the creation of their own masterpiece.Back to all news
